Why a Porthtowan cottage?

Nestled in a valley flanked by granite cliffs, discover the seaside village of Porthtowan. The main attraction of the area is the award-winning beach - so good that they named the town after it (‘Porthtowan’ translated means ‘Cove of Sand Dunes’).

The rolling waves provides for one of Cornwall’s most popular surfing beaches, hosting a number of championships every year. Ideal for a family day out, you can test your balance on a bodyboard or go all out and challenge the Atlantic waves. Children can find fun among the small rock pools teeming with creatures or master their sand castle building.

Being a Blue Flag beach means there is no shortage of amenities nearby. The beachside Blue Bar is a fashionable café bar with great views over the beach.
